Wests Tigers confirm 2017 NRL coaching structure
Wests Tigers have today confirmed the NRL coaching structure for the 2017 NRL season, with three assistant coaches forming part of a new-look team.
Head coach Jason Taylor will be joined by Andrew Webster, Paul Stringer and Craig Sandercock for the upcoming season.
The highly-regarded Webster returns to the club after spending the past two seasons as assistant coach of the New Zealand Warriors under Andrew McFadden. Webster coached Wests Tigers’ Holden Cup side to a finals appearance in 2014, while also assisting with NRL duties throughout that season, and brings a wealth of experience to the coaching team.
After a successful season as head coach of the club’s Intrust Super Premiership side in 2016, Stringer will officially take up the position of an assistant coach with the NRL squad.
Craig Sandercock will continue his role with Wests Tigers in 2017, with the former Newcastle assistant coach implementing a number of successful structures during his first 12 months at the club.
